Reflection Paper - 1322 Words

Throughout the course of the semester we have covered three different philosophers and how those three philosophers think differently. Our first philosopher was Friedrich Nietzsche. The second philosopher was Maurice Merleau-Ponty. The third and final philosopher was Martin Heidegger. This paper is going to consists of Martin Heidegger’s work and how he thinks his way through the journey of his life. â€Å"To think is to confine yourself to a single thought that one day stands still like a star in the world’s sky.† Before Martin Heidegger starts his letter, he inserts this quote. Heidegger is well known for this quote because it speaks to everyone reading it. He is telling his readers that thinking is just another form of being lazy, you have†¦show more content†¦Ã¢â‚¬Å"Language is the house of Being.† This saying means that we view the language more as a tool, something always there for us to use. We tend to take advantage of the situation and think that we do not have to think through our problem. We live in our language and we live our lives determined by the langue. We think so far as we bring being to language. Heidegger strongly believes that we put action above thinking because we tend to act on our emotions and not our thoughts. He tries to get his readers to understand that thought is actually the most important. It correlates being and langu age together because we have to think through things before we act upon them. â€Å"What throws in projection is not man but Being itself, which sends man into the ek-sistence of Da-sein that is his essence. This destiny propriates as the clearing of Being – which it is. The clearing grants nearness to Being. In this nearness, in the clearing of the Da, man dwells as the ek-sisting one without yet being able properly to experience and take over this dwelling,† Heidegger says. We tend to dwell in between two areas, the beings and the Being. We do not realize that we are dwelling here and tend to forget things.

I always hated English simply, because I never concerned myself as a writer. I always stuck to the bare minimum and was pleased to know that I passed. I honestly never tried hard in English because I never felt good enough. I did not see myself as a confident writer and I am not sure I ever will. Since, being enrolled in English 201, it supplied some challenges that I was not ready for and felt unsuited for. Along the way, I learnRead MoreReflection Paper On Writing And Writing1085 Words   |  5 PagesThe content of my paper was typically not the issue, the organization of the ideas was. I always had good ideas to write about, but I never knew how to organize those thoughts into a well-organized paper. Although in Writing 101, I used the multiple steps of the writing process to insert my ideas into a well-written paper, I continued to struggle in areas such as grammar and mechanics. In Writ 102, I was able to realize that the writing process develops over time, and the best papers result from revisionRead MoreReflection Paper : Barbie Q By Sandra Cisneros938 Words   |  4 Pagesexploration paper, the reading and writing paper, the annotated bibliography, and the academic research paper. The semester began with basic lessons on general writing rules during class and progressed into a much more complex course, including lessons on expansion and development of evidence and supporting details, as well as the argument of the paper as a whole.

After hearing I would have wrote a total of 5000 words minimum, I was left flabbergasted.

When writing my papers, however, I still would like to increase my ability to structure my papers with more confidence.

Introduction This paper will be written to discuss the two topics I have chosen to write about for my first reflection paper. The topics I chose are spiritual gifts and love.
